In reviewing the best new books of 2012, one commonly recognized title was the self-help book Quiet, by Susan Cain. Ms. Cain's work graced a variety of national top-10 lists including those by the magazines People, Inc, and O (Oprah) among others.
She summarizes five years of research and argues that our society has ignored a veritable powder-keg of untapped talent. Susan Cain studied at Princeton and Harvard Law School, and she practiced corporate law for seven years representing a variety of large, multinational corporations including Goldman-Sachs, and General Electric.
In her profession she learned that solitude can be a catalyst for innovation and that quiet leadership is not an oxymoron. Her primary message is that society has greatly overlooked the intellectual gifts of the introverted, and this claim is strongly supported throughout her book.
